When an officer still had no commission or being assigned to a boat that in turn was waiting for an assignment, how was he informed on the new assignment, orders or departure dates? Same question, say for example for officers in the ranks of the army or land forces. They just received a letter maybe, but my guess is, it would take too much time and wasn't reliable to reach him. Or they had to muster at some place?
